Autumn Pronghorn

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Fine Art Print | Limited Edition of 35

Pronghorns get their name from the short prong on the front of their horns. While often called antelope or pronghorn antelope, these creatures are not related to antelope at all. In fact they have no close relative on the planet! As their name suggests, pronghorns grown horns not antlers. Here's the interesting thing though, Pronghorns are the only animal that sheds its horns and it is also the only horn that has more than one point.

Pronghorns are the fastest land animal in North America with an average running speed of 40mph but they can reach speeds as fast as 60mph for short distances. Their eyesight offers an impressive 300 degree view and can spot movement up to four miles away! When danger is present, glands on its rump release a scent to let others know to lookout.

Surprisingly, this ultra fast animal drinks very little water and can go weeks without it. Pronghorns receive most of their hydration form the plants that they eat. Since they must remain on alert from predators, Pronghorns only sleep for periods of ten minutes at a time. Traveling in herds during the autumn and winter also helps protect individual animals from predators. In the winter months herds can grow as large as 1,000 pronghorns.

It is estimated that at one point there were as many as 100 million pronghorns in the North America. That number dwindled down to 13,000 by the 1920's due to hunting. Today the population is estimated to be around 800,000 making them fairly common wildlife in the great plains and Southwest regions of the US. © Mike Wardynski Photography
